Philadelphia Lawyer

(Woody Guthrie)

  		                 
D Way out in Reno Ne-{A7} va-da 
Where romance blooms and D fades 
A great Philadel-{D7} phia G Lawyer 
Was in A7 love with a Hollywood D maid. 
 
Come, Love, and we will wander 
Out where the lights are bright 
I'll win you a divorce from your husband 
And we can get married tonight. 
 
Now, Bill was a gun-totin' cowboy 
Ten notches were carved on his gun 
All the boys around Reno 
Left wild Bill's maiden alone. 
 
One night when he was returning 
From riding the range in the cold 
He dreamed of his Hollywood sweetheart 
Her love was as lasting as gold. 
 
As he drew near her window 
A shadow he saw on the shade 
Was the great Philadelphia Lawyer 
Makin' love to his Hollywood maid. 
 
The night was as still as the desert 
The moon was bright overhead 
Bill listened awhile to the lawyer 
He could hear ev'ry word that he said. 
 
"Your hands are so pretty and lovely 
Your form so rare and divine - 
Come, go with me to the city 
And leave this wild cowboy behind." 
 
Now back in old Pennsylvania 
Among those beautiful pines 
There's one less Philadelphia Lawyer 
In old Philadelphia tonight. 
 
TAG: 
There's one less Philadelphia Lawyer 
In old Philadelphia tonight.
